I want to live at 2nd and Charles. If you’ve never been in one, you’re missing out. It’s a chain of used bookstores, but they’re exceptionally clean and bright and organized. Walking into one, you’d never know you weren’t in a store I’ll call Schmarnes & Boble. They have new books, too, but the used books they buy are only in excellent condition, and they still sell them at great prices. I was in the new Jacksonville, FL store today and spent $26 and change. I got four paperback books and one hardback, along with a reusable tote bag. For a book bargain hunter like me, this is nothing short of a miracle.
Among my new purchases is this gem, which I picked out based on the title alone, but which I’m sure is right up my alley.
For that price, I’d probably read just about anything, but something I can put on my Goodreads “Words Words Words” shelf makes it an even better value.
